ECF January 2019 Grading List


The new ECF grading list was published on 23/01/2019, and can be accessed on line at http://www.ecfgrading.org.uk/new/menu.php.


If you want to download the list as an spreadsheet then it can be accessed at http://www.ecfgrading.org.uk/files/grades201901.csv, or  http://www.ecfgrading.org.uk/files/grades.csv.  (The latter always points to the latest list.)


Players in leagues previously not graded by the ECF may find they are not listed if they played in July to December 2018 less than the minimum 5 games to get a grade.  (YCA grading data is fairly obviously not carried forward to ECF system.)  Most such people will have played 5 or more by the end of the season and so get into the July list.


Whether, how and when the new grades will be reflected on the LMS system is unclear at present.
